THE PROJECT

DESIGN-BUILD

Combining the function of an architect, engineer and construction manager into a single entity, Universal Pave’s design-build services provide an integrated approach that is focused on the specific needs of your project.

Design-build has traditionally promised operational advantages to clients through a simplified contract with a single entity and the ability to fast-track work based on the close, contractual relationship between the designer and the builder. But the problems inherent in this approach relate to the design-build contractor’s natural skillset; they’re either primarily a design firm, or they’re a builder - but they’re not strong in both areas.

WHAT & WHY DESIGN-BUILD

At Universal Pave, our many years as a construction manager form a strong foundation for our design-build services. We draw upon our experience with the industry’s leading design firms to create an integrated design-build team customized to the needs and goals of your project. Universal Pave provides team leadership and a single-point of responsibility. We deliver a staff of highly-trained construction professionals, a wealth of knowledge and innovative solutions to every project. Many of our construction professionals have more than 20 years of experience managing complex projects.

Universal Pave’s design-build services eliminate your responsibility for coordinating activities between the designer and the builder—our single contract covers architecture, engineering and construction services. Our staff includes professionals in all areas, from estimating, scheduling and procurement, to construction administration, safety, quality, cost control and MEP coordination and commissioning. This turnkey solution covers all aspects of design and construction management and offers a unique platform to save you time and money.

Clients who choose to streamline the construction process by using our design-build services don’t sacrifice Universal Pave quality or performance. We infuse the same care into design-build projects as we do to our other construction management initiatives, devoting identical staff, management systems and resources. Universal Pave truly delivers design-build services that are the best of all worlds.
